I recently acquired a pipe for next to nothing (a whole $5! WOOT!) that looks to be in great condition. It is a billiard shaped straight pipe that has a lucite stem with a screw mount tenon on it. The bowl of the pipe is white and looks like it has barely been smoked, but the only problem is that there is absolute no markings, no name brand, no maker, no stamp, no nothing to tell me what it is or where it came from? Is there a way that I can tell if this thing is white briar or meerschaum? My camera is on the fritz right now, otherwise I would take a picture of it. Anyway, if someone knows any way that could help me identify this thing I would greatly appreciate it.
